The Cameroon Team is doing good. We spent Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday doing eyeglass and medical clinics in the village of Nsongwa here where the base is located. We began at 10:00 AM and were on our feet until we left at 3:30/ In the three days we gave out 734 pair of eyeglasses and treated 256 medical cases. The old ladies were so happy that they did little dances. We also had multiple people come here at the base on Thursday and Friday. The team is really good eaters. Last night we had a birthday party for the summer birthdays and made homemade tortillas. The kids loved Mexican night!! Each night they take turns sharing what the Lord has been doing in their lives. It is encouraging to hear that they have learned to appreciate home and the things they have taken for granted.
We had planned to go to the bush on Friday but it was delayed a day due to both the rains and the arranging of transportation. We plan on traveling to Ngie Saturday morning and returning on Monday. When we return from the clinics we have our classes do Bible verses and play with the many children that are always here at the base. All the kids have expressed they are growing in the Lord and have really enjoyed the trip. We plan to have a shopping day for souvenirs on Tuesday. We will be headed to the capital on Wednesday as they fly back to the states Thursday. It has been a fantastic summer so far for us. In total we have handed out 1,032 pair of eyeglasses and have treated 700 people medically. Most importantly 27 have come to Christ.
Parents thanks for sharing these fantastic young people with us for a summer, they are truly amazing! They have worked hard spending hours on their feet treating people with kindness and love. They have prayed with each patient and have honestly made a huge impact for Christ here in Cameroon.
